Parking Lot Repair Update

The south end of the parking lot and the alley behind the library will be closed off on Saturday, Oct. 1 and repairs to that lot will begin on Monday, Oct. 3. The project will be completed in 2 to 3 more weeks. Patrons can park in the north parking lot or the lot along 4th Street. Both the main entrance and the entrance on the corner of 4th & Spruce are open.


Striping on the entire lot will be done after the repairs on the south parking lot are finished. For the time being, we urge caution and care when you park in the north end of the lot.

Sunday Hours Return

We have resumed our regular Sunday hours 1 to 5 p.m.


The decision to close temporarily on Sundays was not taken lightly. We simply did not have enough employees to cover a 68-hour, seven day a week public service schedule. Closing Sundays was the least disruptive approach, one that allowed the greatest share of regular services to continue as normal. Every effort is still being made to fill any remaining open positions.
